= Florentin’s Clichés = THE DICTATOR LIFTS THE STATE OF EMERGENCY WITH A CRANE
The Florentin's Cliché should be constructed as follows:
- Change the figurative language [figure of speech] of a cliché to a literal language; - Or distort the clichés, make them abnormal, deviate their common sense by simple substitutions of words;
- Or eliminate some words from a cliché, or switch the verbs between assertion and negation, in order to give the cliché a surprising new significance:
- Or consider a chain of (more or less) contradictory clichés and put together with a unitary semantics;
- Or juxtapose a cliché with a … (partial or total) contradictory syntagma! And as a whole the Florentin’s Cliché should be bended with humor.
